One-Step AFP Strip Rapid Test
The AFP Gold Rapid Screen Test (RST) is a chromatographic immunoassay for the detection of alpha fetoprotein(AFP) in human serum or plasma.
Assay Time: 10-20 minutes
Sample: serum / plasma
The AFP RST is a chromatographic immunoassay (CIA) for the detection of AFP in human serum or plasma. Specific antibody against AFP re-coated onto membrane as a capture reagent on the test region. During the test, specimen is allowed to react with the colloidal gold particles, which have been labeled with other specific antibodies. If AFP present, a pink colored band will develop on the membrane in proportion to the amount of AFP presented in the specimen. Absence of this pink colored band in the test region suggests a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a pink colored band in the control region will always appear regardless the presence of AFP.
